I wrote a tune to potentially play at the live show. This did not happen. I thought it probably wouldn’t happen for the recording either, but on Saturday morning after doing my editing pass on the episode, I overcame my various blockages to emit some guitar, bass, vocals, more vocals, drums, and more guitar, and here’s the result: A novelty song born as I was prepping for a Ramones NEM episode that didn’t quite happen, focused less on the book Brave New World than on how weird it is that this group of dudes who I’m seldom in the same room with has become my main band and is far more famous than any of my actual bands.
I’ve posted the lyrics and some more info about the song on my music blog Patreon page. It’s a public page, not restricted to supporters, but of course if you want me to get off my ass and record any more, I’d highly appreciate if you signed up there to become a supporter on a per-song basis.
